So if I don’t get a callback, does that mean I’m not going to be a lead or supporting character?
Not necessarily. If an actor receives a callback, it is because the directors need to see more of his/her vocal or acting skills before making a decision. Sometimes we know exactly how we want to cast someone just from their initial audition alone and don’t even need to call them back. There’s no rhyme or reason to how this works, and decisions are made according to what would be the best fit for the show. The best advice we can give regarding callbacks is: Don’t over-analyze! 🙂
